Ruthin Castle is one of very few castles that formed part of King Edward’s famous ‘iron ring’ of castles that he used to control Wales in the 13th century. The ‘iron ring’ is considered the most important architectural achievement in Europe of its period, and four of the castles are now listed as UNESCO World Heritage sites.
If you are taking a break in Britain, then you should certainly make time to visit the beautiful North Wales countryside with its market towns and small villages and experience inspiring, mountainous, Snowdonia. See for yourself how awe-inspiring the castles are at Conwy, Caernarfon, Beaumaris and Harlech.
If you want to stay overnight within the great walls of a 13th century Edward I castle, then once again Ruthin Castle is the only castle in Wales where you can do this, and they even have medieval entertainment with Welsh culture in their famous mediaeval banquets. There are some great leisure breaks such as ‘A Knight to Remember’, which includes a memorable romantic stay with dinner in the award-winning ‘Berties’ restaurant and becoming a Knight of Ruthin with your own piece of wall allocated.
